About the writer …

I was pretty much agnostic until the death of my father and one of my daughters within a month of each other. A relative said I should read the Bible for comfort. For the first time in my life I studied the Bible intensely. Part way through, I thought: who on earth could believe such rubbish? How could a homicidal maniac who implored his chosen people to smash the heads of their enemies’ children against a wall be, at the same time, a loving, personal god. I read the Koran, and decided it was the most foul and bloodthirsty tome, imploring genocide and world-domination. After that, I decided that all religions are man-made excuses for excluding those who do not conform to the philosophies developed by a cacophony of leaders over the centuries. My atheism was born.

I am now an iconoclast. I would rather question and destroy traditional political philosophies than support a particular idea. It is for others to build new philosophies from the ruins of the old.
